No one was injured in the collision, which involved an Airbus A330 and a MD-83.
According to company spokesman Herbert Schmell, the Airbus was taxiing towards its parking position when its wing clipped the rear of the MD-83, which had just landed from Geneva.
The passengers had already disembarked from the planes by the time of the crash.
The accident comes four months after a Crossair jet crashed in poor weather conditions on its final approach to Zurich airport, killing 24 people on board.
Just a few days later, there was a "near miss" at the airport when a Crossair Saab 2000 narrowly missed an Air Portugal Airbus during take-off.
